Can Bites From Bed Bugs Cause Lyme Disease?
In the afternoon I want to ask … Does a bite from bed bugs can cause Lyme disease?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Lyme disease is a disease caused by the bacterium Borrelia borgdorferi which is spread by tick bites. Fleas that can carry these bacteria are not all fleas, only Ixodes scapularis or also called deer tick or blacklegged tick. Bed bugs will not cause lyme disease.
Until now lyme disease is also not a common disease found in Indonesia. This disease is more commonly found in the Americas and Europe. Lyme disease is only found in a few countries on the Asian continent, and Indonesia is not among them.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
